Rise and Shine Breakfast Burritos


Rise and Shine Egg and Bean Breakfast Burrito at

Now that school is about to start back up, I like to make sure I have some good breakfast ideas to offer, other than cold cereal.  Breakfast burritos provide a ton of protein and staying power, perfect before school or work. 

We had out of town family come stay with us last weekend, and I made these Egg and Bean Breakfast Burritos for everyone.  Seriously, one of the easiest things to make and you can customize to everyone’s liking!  I wrapped them in foil and everyone grabbed one, or two as they got up!  You can also make a large batch and freeze, then during the morning rush trying to find last nights home work, you just pull one out of the freezer and microwave for a few minutes and you’ve got breakfast to go!!  Wrap each one in plastic wrap, remember to mark the outside if the ingredients inside differ.

How to make Rise and Shine Burritos at

I usually make breakfast burritos with what ever I have on hand.  This week we used seasoned black beans,with a few veggies and cheese.

I simply heated the black beans in a small sauce pan, while I chopped some tomato, mushrooms and red peppers (green pepper would have been more colorful, but I only had red).

Next I scrambled a few eggs in my cast iron skillet, then added the beans and veggies; heated the tortillas, then topped the tortillas with the egg mixture and sprinkled with a little cheese, rolled and  done!  How simple is that?!

If you are making them for a crowd, wrap them in aluminum foil so they stay warm for your guests!

  • 1 (16 ounce) can BUSH’S® Seasoned Black Beans, drained and rinsed
  • 1 tablespoon olive oil
  • 8 small eggs, lightly beaten
  • 8 (6 inch) flour tortillas
  • 1/2 cup shredded Cheddar and Mexican cheese
  • 1/2 tomato, diced
  • 1/2 cup mushrooms, chopped
  • 1/2 red or green pepper, chopped
  • 1 cup fresh tomato salsa
  • Salt and pepper, to taste


  1. Preheat oven to 300 degrees F.
  2. Heat beans in a medium sauce pot. Set aside.
  3. Heat a nonstick large pan over medium heat. Add olive oil and eggs. Using a spatula, cook and stir until eggs are scrambled. Season with salt and pepper.
  4. Add black beans and vegetables to eggs
  5. Spread egg mixture in the lower section of the tortilla; top with cheese.
  6. Fold the outer 1/2-inch left and right sides of the tortilla in. This will help keep the filling inside once you roll your tortilla into a burrito.
